Chays Gearhart

Account Manager
Kalamazoo, Michigan

This is my first year as an Account Manager for the Kalamazoo branch. In my current role, I recruit and pair qualified candidates with job opportunities that fit their career needs while also meeting the staffing requirements of AccessPoint’s clientele. I have a history of working in roles in which I facilitated intercompany communications, processes, and relationships. I look forward to using the skills that I have learned in previous roles to build and strengthen AccessPoint’s relationships with our current clients and to facilitate the personal growth of our associates.

I often spend my free time with my close friends and family, most of us are nerdy boardgame enthusiasts. My fiancé and I love taking our Golden Retriever, Teddy, for walks and adventures. I’m also an avid movie watcher and book reader, I can spend hours talking about both. I love to get back to nature and for exercise, I often go for jogs through the woods or go kayaking on the lake.

Favorite quote:

“But if we stop, if we accept the person we are when we fall, the journey ends. That failure becomes our destination. To love the journey is to accept no such end. I have found, through painful experience, that the most important step a person can take is always the next one.” -Brandon Sanderson
